Gun slits faced onto the entrance passage in the event of an invasion. The room behind was the prison or lock-up.The Powder Magazine was initially designed as a casemated gunchamber to defend the entrance of the valley. When it was changed to a powder magazine all the vents and windows were blocked up. Notice the unique method of ventilation.The two holes in the ceiling were linked to vents facing east in direct line of the trade winds and the smoke filled air would be sucked out through the vents.Three flavours of bay leaf are found on the Cabrits. · Citronella · Sitwonnel · Anis · Nanni · Common · KomenHow does the Lamowi or Leaf-of-Life reproduce? · By producing seeds which germinate · By sending out roots underground · By growing tiny plants on the edge of its leaves
